For Schools

Hundreds of schools use these amazingly effective strategies for restoring order and civility to today's turbulent classrooms. Now you too can use Positive Discipline as a foundation for fostering cooperation, problem-solving skills, and mutual respect in students.

For Parent Educators

Recent research tells us that children are “hardwired” from birth to connect with others, and that children who feel a sense of connection to their community, family, and school are less likely to misbehave. To be successful, contributing members of their community, children must learn necessary social and life skills.


Teachers, Administrators, Professional Development Personnel, Counselors, community representatives, and anyone who works with young people and wants to promote mutual respect and character development will benefit from our certification process.

international AFFILIATES

Positive Discipline has become a global organization with trainers in over 50 countries throughout the world! Many of the training materials have been translated or are in the process of being translated. We also have a DVD Training and Online Streaming Training available for those who cannot find a local training.
